New gullwing Merc made to look even more like original 300SL
3 November 2009

A Texan tuner has created an outlandish bodykit for the new gullwing Mercedes SLS. The SLS Panamericana is the work of Arturo Alonso and is designed to look even more like the classic 300SL Gullwing which inspired it.

The car’s bodywork is made from aluminium and carbonfibre and features wheelarch estensions that ape those on the fifeties original.

New round headlights now sit on the front of the SLS and eighties-style wheels now fill the arches.

The interior is left mostly original except for some extra Alcantara and a smattering of Panamericana logos. A set of optional racing stripes is also available for the exterior.

save for the red accents behind the headlights, I think it looks good.

Silver or gray are the only colors that looks nice on the SLS, IMO.
